This is an auction for EXTREME MONEY: THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE AND THE CULT OF RISK, by Satyajit Das.

"Part history, part book of financial quotations, part cautionary tale, part textbook. It contains some of the clearest charts about risk transfer you will find anywhere. ...Others have laid out the dire consequences of financialisation ("the conversion of everything into monetary form", in Das’s phrase), but few have done it with a wider or more entertaining range of references...Extreme Money does... reach an important, if worrying, conclusion: financialisation may be too deep-rooted to be torn out. As Das puts it "the hardest virus to kill is an idea"."
- Financial Times (UK)

Amazon.com review:

"The human race created money and finance. But our inventions re-create us. Mankind mistook money—a lubricant of society and human well-being—for an end in itself. Finance, the monetary shadow of real things, came to dominate human reality. Extreme Money tells the story of how this happened. Satyajit Das draws on 33 years of experience at the heart of modern global finance to narrate this story. He reveals the money games that have generated massive bubbles of fake growth while endangering virtually everyone outside the financial industry. Everything from home mortgages to climate change has become financialized, as fortunes are enerated by individuals who build nothing of lasting value. Das shows how “extreme money” has become ever more unreal; how “voodoo banking” continues to generate massive phony profits even now; and how a new generation of 'Masters of the Universe' has come to dominate the world."
